Job Description

The Montana State University College of Nursing offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and an accelerated BSN degree option for applicants who already have a bachelor's degree in another discipline. At the graduate level we offer a Master of Nursing degree, as well as a Doctorate of Nursing Practice. The undergraduate curriculum is offered in five locations across the state (Billings, Bozeman, Great Falls, Missoula, and Kalispell) to better serve the needs of our students and the state. The MN and DNP programs are largely distance delivered and offer curriculum options including: Clinical Nurse Leader (MN), Family/Individual Nurse Practitioner (DNP), and Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (DNP). A Certificate in Nursing Education is also offered. The College of Nursing offers a research supportive environment in which tenure track faculty focus on projects of relevance to health care in rural and isolated areas. The College has been nationally recognized for its work in rural nursing practice, research that focuses on the needs of vulnerable populations especially American Indians, and the preparation of health care providers to serve rural areas. The Caring for Our Own Program (CO-OP), a project to recruit and retain American Indian students in nursing, is a national model for such work.

The College of Nursing is seeking nursing faculty representing diverse backgrounds to assume tenure track positions in a variety of specialty areas. Faculty members have opportunities to teach in both the graduate and undergraduate programs. Tenure track faculty members are expected to establish a focused program of research and to successfully seek extramural funding. All members of the faculty are expected to engage in college and university service and to provide nursing leadership in Montana and beyond through active participation in professional nursing organizations. We hope to attract applicants who are committed to helping students from diverse backgrounds succeed.
